Volunteer Coach - Braven Leadership Coach Program

Braven is recruiting Leadership Coaches for a semester-long social impact opportunity. Leadership Coaches are volunteers who lead a diverse team of 5-8 college students from NYC, Newark, Chicago and the Bay Area through a career accelerating course. This experience will build your own leadership and management skills as you ensure the next generation of leaders emerges from everywhere.


HOW TO APPLY

Interested? Submit a Leadership Coach application to be considered. Program runs January - May. The time commitment is 3-4 hours per week for 15 weeks. 


ABOUT BRAVEN & THE PROBLEM YOU’D HELP SOLVE

Only 25% of low-income or first-generation college students graduate and attain a strong job. At the same time, local companies struggle to hire and retain local, diverse talent. Braven seeks to close this talent gap by partnering with colleges and companies to equip underrepresented young people with the skills, networks, and experiences they need to succeed professionally. 


BRAVEN’S RESULTS TO DATE

To date, Braven is proud to report that 95% of their Fellows are still persisting in or completed college, and 71% of their graduates have landed a strong first job or grad school admission (compared to 49% of their peers nationally). Additionally, 99% of Leadership Coaches say the program helped them develop and practice skills that apply directly to their job performance and leadership growth, and 86% of coaches said Braven was the most rewarding volunteer experience they’ve ever had.

WHAT YOU WILL DO

  • Facilitate weekly, 2-hour experiential learning sessions

Braven provides all content and curriculum and trains and supports Coaches throughout the experience.
